The Arab media is in the midst of a revolution that will inform questions of war and peace in the Middle East, political and societal reform, and relations between the West and the Arab World. Drawing on the first broad cross-border survey of Arab journalists, first-person interviews with scores of reporters and editors, and his three decades' experience reporting from the Middle East, Laurence Pintak examines how Arab journalists see themselves and their mission at this critical time in the evolution of the Arab media. He explores how, in a diverse Arab media landscape expressing myriad opinions, journalists are still under siege as governments fight a rear-guard action to manage the message. This innovative book breaks through the stereotypes about Arab journalists to reveal the fascinating and complex reality - and what it means for the rest of us.

In 1990, Bill Porter set up the International Communications Forum (ICF) as a body to campaign for higher ethical standards in journalism. By his death in April 2009 the ICF had become a major international organisation. Media Values brings together the writings of 27 experienced international journalists and artists to celebrate Bill Porter’s life and reflect on the values that he promoted through the ICF.• Bernard Margueritte argues that the moral leadership provided by men such as Bill Porter can inspire us all to work for higher standards in the media• Fabrice Boulé advocates the role of the media in conflict resolution.• Alan Channer stresses the role of the theatre as a force for good• John B Fairfax traces the impact of proprietors on newspaper history• Carol Goar explains how she learned some risks are worth taking• Martyn Lewis promotes solution-oriented journalism• Rafael Marques de Morais assesses media standards in Angola.• Natalya Skvortsova suggests its time for journalists to admit their mistakes• Bob Webb argues that all journalists have a duty to challenge racism.One section of Media Values concentrates on the new ethical dilemmas facing journalists in the age of the internet. Magnus Linklater for instance, argues that, while the advent of the internet and 24/7 news operations are changing the face of journalism, there is no reason why the industry should abandon the principles on which it is founded.

Moral Dilemmas in Real Life

Moral Dilemmas in Real Life purports to supply ways of thinking of, perhaps even dealing with, the ins and outs of ethical argument. The world today presents both individuals and communities with situations, which demand moral and ethical deliberations. From the more general issues of universal globalization to the very specific problems of every-day existence encountered by active agents, contemporary life is replete with moral and ethical conundrums. Any thinking person is required, so it seems, to be concerned, involved, or – at the very least – conversant with these issues and this book supplies the wherewithal needed. Applied ethics is that intellectual locale where theory meets praxis. Moral Dilemmas in Real Life is designed to make that meeting point explicit, by presenting a series of issues in well-grounded philosophical formulations. The book begins with the general relation between the individual and society – instilling ethical tension, and even clashes, between the private and the public in our discourse. Going on, from general to specific, it gradually narrows the ethical playing field to touch on medical ethics, the family, and the practice of punishment. In all cases, the book addresses both consensual and conventional social institutions and distortions thereof.
